How to Improve Your Quality of Life by 33% Today

I touched on the importance of sleep in my article, “Three Foundations & The First Step Toward Mindful Leadership.” As I explained in that piece, quality sleep is one of the central foundation stones of optimal physical and emotional health. And yet it is underrated by some, and elusive for many.

The first step in this process is truly understanding, and appreciating, the importance of sleep to our health and emotional wellbeing.

At that point in the fitness industry’s history, the term “Wellness” was just coming into our vernacular. Most of us fitness zealots didn’t really understand what wellness was, but on some level, it resonated with me as the way of the future.

As my career in fitness morphed into a career in wellness, my appreciation for the more holistic benefits of balancing body, mind and spirit were accentuated.

Does Our Built Environment Affect Our Relationships?

Does Our Built Environment Affect Our Relationships?

The “Big Mac” symbolizes the belief that more is better. If one beef patty is good, wouldn’t two beef patties be better?

Similarly, the colloquialism of the “McMansion” suggests that bigger is better when it comes to homes.

It feels as though in modern housing estates with tightly packed McMansions, compromise on the lot size is a given in order to get a bigger house for the money.

This is not just developers trying to maximize their land asset, it is also consumers saying they’d rather get a bigger house and forgo lot size in order to achieve additional square footage.

What Does a Healthy Community Look Like Beyond COVID?

What Does a Healthy Community Look Like Beyond COVID?

When we explore the power of community, nothing brings it into focus more clearly and powerfully than the varied responses to the COVID crisis. Through this lens, the dichotomy of our present reality also comes into stark relief.

As COVID descended squarely on the shoulders of humanity, partisanship and commercial interests were squarely at odds with the need for communities to work in harmony and solidarity to stave off escalating infection and spiraling death rates.

Studies show that positive feedback needs to be delivered at a ration of 6:1 in order to counterbalance constructive feedback.

While one does not equal one in the feedback stakes, you can’t stay on course without giving constructive feedback.

So how do you deliver all these positive pieces of encouragement when you’re deluged by emails and all the trappings of leadership that weigh you down on a daily basis?

Red Oceans, Blue Zones and You!

Red Oceans, Blue Zones and You!

The business environment is roiling; stress is at an all-time high; and yet some leaders seem to swim those troubled waters with equanimity and ease. After 35 plus years as a leader and senior executive in the healthcare, fitness, and wellness industries, I have learned one indisputable truth: one size does not fit all when it comes to a healthy lifestyle and self-care. What works for one person may not work for another. This is not another exercise more and eat less lecture. It is a simple set of lifestyle options for leaders that can enhance the quality of your life, your leadership, and positively impact those around you.
